Fall is such a special time to have a wedding! Play up the distinctive flavor of the season by including beautiful autumnal details in your celebration. These are some fantastic fall wedding ideas.
Welcome your guests to your wedding with the traditional flavors of fall. A hot apple cider station would be a wonderful addition to either the ceremony location or cocktail hour. The aroma of the mulling spices is a delicious scent, and the warm cider is the perfect way get cozy on a crisp cool afternoon. You could really make a fun display with a rustic looking wooden stand, barrels of apples, and of course the hot cider carafes. Have cinnamon sticks on hand for guests to place in their mugs of cider. If you run with a die-hard coffee drinking crowd, an alternative option would be a station serving pumpkin spice lattes at the entrance to the ceremony or reception. Either idea would be phenomenal for an outdoor fall wedding.
Many fall weddings have a rustic charm, so why not embrace that spirit with charming details? Instead of regular chairs, set up hay bales for the ceremony seating. Cover them with fabric to make them prettier and less scratchy. For the altar area, tall stalks of wheat, colorful dried corn, and grapevines would be spectacular decorations for an arbor or Chuppah poles.
Bring in more color with orange Chinese lantern pods and baskets of autumnal mums at the base of the posts. You could line the borders of the ceremony aisle with colorful fall leaves instead of using flower petals or a fabric runner. Small lanterns with a dark goldenrod colored candles inside would be gorgeous decorations for the end of each aisle. Suspend them with shepherd’s hooks for a beautiful effect.
